In ESP8266WiFi library the
ArduinoWiFiServer class implements
available and the write-to-all-clients functionality as described in the Arduino WiFi library reference. The PageServer example shows how
available and the write-to-all-clients works.
For most use cases the basic WiFiServer class of the ESP8266WiFi library is suitable.
Methods and properties described further down are specific to ESP8266. They are not covered in Arduino WiFi library documentation. Before they are fully documented please refer to information below.
accept() returns a waiting client connection. accept() is documented for the Arduino Ethernet library.
available in the ESP8266WiFi library’s WiFiServer class doesn’t work as documented for the Arduino WiFi library. It works the same way as
write (write to all clients) not supported
Please note that the
write method on the
WiFiServer object is not implemented and returns failure always. Use the returned
WiFiClient object from the
WiFiServer::accept() method to communicate with individual clients. If you need to send
the exact same packets to a series of clients, your application must maintain a list of connected clients and iterate over them manually.
nodelay set to
true, this function will to disable Nagle algorithm.
This algorithm is intended to reduce TCP/IP traffic of small packets sent over the network by combining a number of small outgoing messages, and sending them all at once. The downside of such approach is effectively delaying individual messages until a big enough packet is assembled.
nodelay value will depends on global
WiFiClient::getDefaultNoDelay() (currently false by default).
However, a call to
wiFiServer.setNoDelay() will override
NoDelay for all new
WiFiClient provided by the calling instance (
